Anyone know what Nick McGlynn was doing today?
Paul Dano on his role in Gigantic:Did you do any special research for getting into this role? Hang out at Sleepys a lot? Actually, I did hang out at Sleepys. In fact, I talked to such a sweet and charming salesman that I ended up buying a bed, which was not my intention. The next day I had to cancel my order, which I still feel very bad about. Hopefully I can go back and actually buy a bed from...
ninety9: Clogging v. to take one 140 character snippet of text and refeed it through every social media/personal CMS you participate in, insuring that your dedicated followers see the same useless blurb several times. Guilty. (Sorry, Courtney.)
melissa: Someone wonderful offered me a sublet. God I want to take it. I just need more work waiting for me in the city. Can you help? [melissa @ melissagira.com] The silence will be deafening, but don’t take it personally.
Boom, goes the dynamite. If you’re jealous of Lady Gaga, raise your hand. Solid. Total count, Boss: four. Criterion will be presented upon request. Now: just dance.
katiebakes: The perfect storm of 60 Minutes awesomeness. Featuring Lesley Stahl’s Lipstick and straight out of the Ruth Marx/Crash Override era. I am so going to poke Morley Safer on Facebook. Re Conficker, I deliver. Put this in your mom’s pipe and tell her not to inhale. THE INTERNET IS INFECTED, PEOPLE. UPDATE: Oh my god you guys, I think they took down the video! OR MAYBE CONFICKER...
caro: “I have the key to this here city, my dear.” — Andrew Mager on San Francisco. If you know him, you’ll be like, “Yep, he does.” Steal it, lock up Owen and throw it away.
ninety9: If I could figure out how the question thing worked, I would ask “Could someone check with Jeff Jarvis for the answer as to how the newspaperless future is going to develop news reporting such as this? Unrelated: more evidence that the democratic wonderland that is NYS is a festival of cronyism, corruption and inefficiency. I don’t think Jarvis has ever said news reporting will...
Fek, please get in here and swing your unfollow pipe. These heavy image/little text posters and Lady GaGa fanatics are giving me a panic attack.
Maybe this is supposed to be funny, but it isn’t.
Post-Madoff, Wiesel has apparently turned to drugs. A sad story.
ninety9: youngmanhattanite: Next Year In Twitter: A Facebook Haggadah — it’s probably been blogged 30,000 times already, but I don’t care, I’m sleepy. Andrew, make a list of things that perplex you (e.g., “Who is ‘Moses’”) and we’ll go over it tomorrow. Can someone please link me up to the Tired of Trying to Parse Jew Terms Glossary for New York Goys UnJews? I don’t appreciate people who...
Larry the Cable Guy made $30 million last year. Don’t think about it.
Who’s Ryan Brown?
We tire of the Twitter strategy of referring to famous people by their first name so as to imply that you are on a first-name basis with them. Stop being so damn transparent about bolstering your “brand” and get something done for real, people. Yes, we’re looking at you.
Next Year In Twitter: A Facebook Haggadah — it’s probably been blogged 30,000 times already, but I don’t care, I’m sleepy. Andrew, make a list of things that perplex you (e.g., “Who is ‘Moses’”) and we’ll go over it tomorrow.
If you click on this link you will hear some things you can never unhear.
Did Orell OD on Paul Mitchell or something? WTF? He’s the second media “personae” to check himself into the hospital in under a week: YM contributor and blogger for some shitty sports site that nobody reads, Dashiell Bennett, also went McMurphy on us this week.* Is there some Outbreak-like virus spreading amongst the New York Media Scene? This is like something out of The fucking...
Words That Should Be Deleted From The English...
Remember when Gawker used to write for the media underclass? I’ve been an apologist for them for the longest time. Not any more. All they do these days is put into question the jobs of the New York media’s most vulnerable while calling out anyone who has anything even remotely resembling job security as a hack. Schadenfreude should be reserved for assholes, and the working assumption...
The Snuggie is just a blanket with holes in it. If you own one, you should be smothered with it.
We’re giving Hitch an F (and wouldn’t be surprised if he regrets not having been killed, a martyr to his imaginary cause).
“I should also add that it’s very difficult to satirize the Jewish world, because just when you think you’ve made something preposterous, you pick up the newspaper and see that events have actually out-satirized what you’ve just done. So it’s always a race with reality. I’m more of a stenographer than a satirist in that regard.” That’s our very own Eli Valley being interviewed...
Madoff needs a song. A ballad. Can we work on this? Temporary nomination “Cold Desert” by Kings of Leonor “baby Did a Bad Bad Thing” by Chris Izzak, een though the song of those that can prety much get anybody laid won’t get him laid. But right now, we ned a theme.
Hottest Ticket in America, 2009: Seats near the Madoffs at Yom Kippur this year. They should live feed his brain particles to see what comes out during the atonement, project it on to the live ticker at the bottom of CNBC. I’m tellin; you, this could be bigger than the Watergate hearings,
Has Bernie Madoff shifted the global perception regarding Jews and the money within their control and the security of that investment, the one made by the Jew? This isn’t gonna be forever, is it?
Is Bernie Madoff a rainmaker?
Is Bernie Madoff a jew?
Is Bernie Madoff mad?
Just another Jew name to me. Good thing he had the first, more congieneal one going for him.
Bernie sounds like my great uncle with the once-lounge act he’ll delve into at familygatherings with anything over a baby grand.
Bernie Madoff is a comforting name.
Bernie Madoff shirts will be cool in five years. Maybe less.
Bernie Madoff will eventually find a fatherlike figure who will help the government use Madoff for catching other Madoff schemes. He wil get to go back to Tom Hanks place for Christmas one year
Bernie Madoff will get naked and teach a younger man how to love.
My question was finally answered. Thank god. Onward: my dad used to tell this great joke: What does Woody Allen have in common with Kodak Film?
I got a message for smokey
Wak, Smak, Brown, Murray, Zeppo, and whowver the fuck your bitch ass crew is: Drinks, tomorrow, Burg. Bring your chains.
What’s the difference in between a bad Madoff joke and a good one? Satire disguised as latent anti-antisemitism disguised as off-color humor.
